The Honorable Dr. Sally Greene, Esquire will be returning to her reporting roots when she interviews the Duke of Devonshire as he visits Tyler, Texas. The Duke is there to promote a showing of selections from his family’s collection of art and fine objects opening at the Tyler Museum of Art called “The Devonshire Inheritance: Five Centuries of Collecting at Chatsworth.”

Sally will be taking a break from helping out her mother who is recovering from an automobile accident at East Texas Medical Center Rehabilitation Center in Tyler.

  1. Sally says:

    All the interview slots were taken, which is just as well as I would have had to bone up on him more than I really had time for. But I did get to ask him my one question: what on earth did Virginia Woolf mean when she wrote about Vita Sackville-West’s going to “visit Chatsworth to control silver, servants, chow dogs”? Vita’s estate was Sissinghurst. She did not have anything particular to do with Chatsworth that I know of. So what does this mean? I asked the great Duke. He has no idea. But he does offer that Chatsworth will appear in the background of a new movie version of Pride and Prejudice.

    The press event was good and the exhibit is fabulous. Read about it in Saturday’s Gilmer Mirror.
